Emrik M-Rock Larsson started out as a singer and bandleader of the powerhouse Swedish funk-hip-hop band Stonefunkers. They started their funk mission in 1988 with the single Turn it up. They released five albums, including the hit singles M-Rock theory, Can u follow, Funkadeena. The band toured around Europe for more than ten years and made a great impact on the Swedish funk and dance scene. Stonefunkers were considered Sweden’s no 1 live band for many years. After a break up in 2001, Emrik made 4 albums in Swedish, the most successful being Lögnhalsen (2006). In 2010 Stonefunkers briefly reunited and Emrik got back to his funk roots. He first released the Funk Rock album AIRBORNE influenced by his skateboarding past. In 2014 M-ROCK & Wefunky Band released their first funk album PHUNK OBSERVATORY; an album filled with funk, disco, boogie and hip-hop. 2016 the focus on heavy funk and groove was even more present with the release of THE COSMIC PHUNK SAGA CONTINUES. From 2017 to 2020 M-Rock released singles such as America, Party Zone and Staden vi älskar. 2021 M-Rock & Wefunky Band return with a full length album CELEBRATION.

Here’s what funk man Jan Lumholdt says about the upcoming album:
“Wefunky, youfunky, mefunky… George, Sly, James, Roger, Bootsy, Larry, even some Quincy… Shake n’ stir, soft, mellow, go-go, never so-so, always on the 1. Band tight, tasteful (lovely horns), leaving nothing or anything not to like here (check the instrumentals for more). 30+ years and counting since M-Rock L Supremo hit the scene.“
